Homemade Shaving Cream

Did you know you can make shaving cream at home and it works better than the store bought ones? Try it out with this simple recipe.

What you need

1/4 cup of steraic acid powder
1 tsp of borax
2 tbs of grated soap or melt and pour soap base
1 cup of hot water


Melt the stearic acid down into a clear liquid using a double boiler method.

Add all the remaining ingredients together such as the using Melt and Pour Soap base. and keep stirring until it is well mixed.

Place the soap ingredients into a blender and mix well for a few minutes, then carefully and slowly add the stearic acid to the mix and blend until it is a thick creamy consistency.

Pour into a large container and its ready for use.

This cream settles slightly when not being used so give it a stir or store it in a jar that can be shaken prior to use.

Use it like normal shaving cream!


  1. You can add a drop of essential oil to give it a good smell. But dont add to much for it could irritate skin if there is too much in it. I use peppermint essential oil in all of my stuff

  2. Can I add some oils to provide a good smel?.. any suggestions?
